for you. >> sean: america, there you are looking live at the smoke-filled backroom where house and senate democrats will conspire to ram through their health care reform package away from the prying eyes of you, the american people. this is the top secret room deep inside the corridors of the u.s. capitol where the final negotiations will take place in a stunning break from tradition democratic leaders will forego the conference process to merge the bills. secret deliberations will likely be held behind closed doors. that brings us to our headline tonight: democracy in hiding." the seem was developed by nancy pelosi and harry reid drawing heavy fire from republicans who along with you the american people will all be locked out of these deliberations. not only is this breaking traditions, democrats like president obama he's breaking a promise. remember when the anointed one said this about health care negotiations during his presidential debate. >> not negotiating behind closed doors but bringing all parties together. and broadcasting those negotiations on c-span so the american people can

and in the commodity area there. bank of america, they had a loss of 60 cents. that was a bit larger than a consensus loss of 52 cents. the bottom line is pretty simple. credit is slowly improving at bank of america and many other banks. that's what the -- what most traders were telling me this morning here. also, wells fargo also reported a profit here. a little bit better than expected but loan loss reserves were reduced as well. trader talk.cnbc.com. scott, how are we looking at the nasdaq? >> we can open a few points to the downside. that's what the remarket indicator is showing. take a look at big cap technology stocks. most are showing modest losses in the premarket but we're focused on apple down about 0.5% as there is a report it's talking with microsoft about making bing the default search engine on the iphone replacing google. you have microsoft shares still under pressure this morning. google down as well in the premarket. across the board really oracle, intel, and research in motion are all to the down side. certainly there is a lot of focus on technology stocks today in the wake of the b
, pull out now. >> sean: we are going to talk about this in our hannity's america segment, next. 40% of the country for the year 2009 identified themselves as conservative, 21% say they are liberal. by 2-1 this is still a center right country think it is going to be viewed as over reaching, contempt, arrogance, that they misread the election results. this could be one of the biggest midterm elections ever. >> it will be. >> they are not even listening to the american people as in go after these various agendas. >> i think it is going to be a banner election, wait and see. >> sean: i have a cold. >> i lost my voice. >> sean: but we are all here! we love you. >> and we're transparent. >> sean: exactly. and thank you zicam helping me a lot. the budget director taking a page from tiger woods' playbook, next. >> 9th circuit court of appeals latest ruling that could give felons a chance to vote, next. e >> sean: tonight in hannity's america things may have looked up for liberals at the start of 2009. turns out this past year marked the resurgence of conservatism in ame
political parties facilitate that folly. in the america that i grew up in we didn't have too big to fail, we had the creative destruction of capitalism. we didn't keep weak companies, artificially alive. we let them go so that more dynamic companies with smarter business models and better goods and services could take their place, giving all of us a higher standard of living. we let the market and the consumer decide. we didn't force people to buy he understan understan understands-- edsels, if we had to we could live without chrysler and general motors, in the era i lived in, you got a mortgage because were you qualified not because you had a pulse. i wonder how america looks to our young people out of college or graduate school and many are forced to take jobs that don't require a college degree let alone a law degree or mba and many of them are up to their eyeballs with private debt while the government saddles them with public debt that will burd den them. we sacrificed for the next generation not stolen from them. instead of generational theft we need generational thrift. some young peo
money. their traditional organizes, the red cross, the bush/clinton fund. in the appeal to america's generosity and compassion we will respond but i urge viewers to pay close attention to whom you send your check or who whom you give your credit card number. the second challenge i think is not unlike those we've seen in other natural events, this magnitude. this is a poor -- this is the most impoverished country in the western hemisphere. very little infrastructure to start w very little pipeline, inadequate roads and given the magnitude of the devastation we shouldn't be surprised initially there are problems with distributing the aid that we know they denied to desperately. >>> they'll work it through. >> neil: we do. but are you saying the better part of valor might be to avoid haitian government authority and find either respectable international relief agencies to do that? >> yeah, at the outset americans would be -- i would advise americans to contribute to those entities they know of and perhaps had supported in the past, direct their aid in that fashion. the longer term que
the coast of central america and on into south america in venezuela, too. that happened within the hour. and it is -- spots like st. lucia is around that ring of islands. unfortunately, very, very serious earthquake. for us, we are seeing a change in the pattern. it has been another icy day. there we are. our temperature, our high temperature today made it up once again. only up into the low 30s with a lot of ice around it. that ice is not safe. 35 degrees. 11 days in a row now below 40. tomorrow, we may finally break that string. look at the morning low temperatures. pensacola has gone 11 days with the temperature of 32 or lower.ó our current temperature is 33 degrees on the way down below freezing again. look at the morning low temperatures in florida. 43 in miami. 23 in jacksonville. and there were a few records. not as many as yesterday when they were over 90 spots with record low temperatures, but, again, it's still a cool pattern. but it is beginning to break. the windchills right now, making it feel like it's in the teens. there was another freeze warning out for florida. we sti
to help. you have to help for that reason, and you have to help for america. we don't have health. what if something was to happen to mississippi or new orleans or any inner city in america? guess what? those people don't have health, and we're going to need help. so you have to help. just like we would need help if something was to happen to us. >> larry: tea you're a unicef am das bo bass dor. what do you have with you that unicef provides? >> what's the difference between this crisis and maybe the tsunami? after the tsunami we were able to prevent the death of any child in sort of the second wave of a disaster, which is bringing in supplies. we're looking at a much more desperate situation here. one of the things that we're sending over, which is sort of so urgent, the children of haiti before this crisis, as you were saying, were already in sort of a dire situation. kids who are malnourisheded are much more susceptible to suffer from disease. they're more apt to control call reor dis tear. one pact is about 7 cents. >> larry: show it to the camera. >> this is an incredible life-savi
as well said delinquencies fell in december and chargeoffs continue to rise and bank of america, you see it in the bottom of your screen down 3% as well. even though intel had better-than-expected earnings and it's a sell on the news picture today because you've seen the semiconductor index weigh on the major averages as well and some of those chip names like texas instruments almost to the downside. teradyne as well. amd is bucking the trend even though it's a fractional move to the upside. fertilizer stocks i continue to watch those. we'll continue to watch both of those shares. agrium to the down side by more than two bucks and potash is having a pretty good day as the price target was raised over it, rbc. take a look at some of the office supply companies as they're focused around a modest recovery, if you will in the job market, and i mean modest. it was upgraded by j.p. morgan to overweight from neutral. in the labor market you've seen staples and office depot rising on the back of that as well. schlumberger was raised to a buy over at jefferies and then kellogg was upgraded to a b
-business. as for the number one priority, health care reform, america is not too keen on that either. according to a new gallup survey, 55% want democrats to immediately suspend work on their health care reform bill and consider alternatives. the only good news i have for the president is the week is almost over. there's a lot of football this weekend. apparently he couldn't let the week pass without talking about his favorite subject, himself. look at today's white house orchestrated town hall event in ohio. >> what does it mean for obama? obama is just trying to perpetrate big government. obama is trying to cut medicare. there's some who think if obama loses, we win. >> sean: joining me reaction to all this karl rove the architect. i guess talking in the third person -- did you notice how angry he was today? >> yeah, absolutely. he did try and cut medicare. there was a reason people were saying that he laid out a plan to cut medicare by 456 billion dollars. of course people were saying obama is trying to cut medicare. i was amazed about that speech, he went on to say, look i've been trarpbs transparen
be so strong? action today in wells fargo and bank of america, unlike stocks here, lady gaga plays with an open hand, not a poker space, makes me suspicious of the bear argument, real estate and credit, right? how often do we check in and hear how horrible those are? and it's true. wells fargo has a tremendous amount of the variable rate mortgages at the heart of the shadow inventory numbers. wells fargo is concentrated in california, the worst market. defaults during the period that it underwrote most of the paper, bank of america, a slew of this bad paper. so here's the issue as i see it. this is what's key for you. if the stories of shadow inventory from foreclosures are 100% right, if the default stories are 100% right, then there's simply no reason, right, no reason these stocks are going higher. none. the stocks should be going down every day, they should be lower, much lower. i don't care how much capital they have to raise. it's just not logical if the horror stories are right. so then i come back to this logic, spock. how long is the market? i know for short periods, the m
bill. done behind closed doors. misrepresenting the healthcare of america. as a physician for 40 years of course i was interested in that that. when we saw the debt pimed on our children and grandchildren, i felt like it was time to more to say enough is enough. and the republicans, every time i looked around for help for missile defense or manned space flight, there was a republican there. well, maybe i need to be with people helping me and my constituents. that's what made me switch. >> i'm sure it wasn't the most popular decisions you made with the democratic leaders. we'll talk about that when we come back. i'm anxious to find out what did nancy pelosi say to you when she heard the news? that is what we'll check out. coming up more with congressman griffith. later songwriter mastermind neil sedaka. he has done it again. you find out later. ♪ love hurts ♪ love scars ♪ love wounds [ male announcer ] before you ever love it, the nissan altima goes through over 5,000 tests. no wonder it's ranked highest in initial quality by j.d. power and associates. it's quality you can love. l

the united states of america. the longer it goes on, the worse it is for the country and the worse it is for the administration. >> bill: i do think that the media is consciously underreporting this story tonight. i don't think you will see it on many other broadcasts. president obama out today trying to convince republicans to cooperate with him. that was one of his themes in the state of the union address that the republicans are the party of no. here is what mr. obama said today. >> i know folks, when we are in town there, spend a lot of time reading the polls and looking at focus groups and interpreting which party has the upper hand in november and in 2012 and so on and so on and so on. that's their obsession. i'm not a pundit. i'm just a president. so take it for what it's worth. but i don't believe that the american people want us to focus on our job security. they want us to focus on their job security. >> bill: so my question is, do you believe the republican party is going to cooperate with the president. or, as we said, after the state of the union, they are just going t

for the presidency and continues to be. >> bill: but generally speaking, liberal americans do believe that america is a racist society. >> i think that is true no, doubt. >> bill: and harry reid falls into that category and is from a state, nevada, with not a large african american population. but we come back to the central question if i had said that, you had said that, anybody who is not a liberal, we would have been just carved up. and not harry reid. so we are basically looking at a sew sigh city that simply is not -- at a society that is simply not honest, particularly in the media, we are just not honest. >> i think that it is not everybody in america who -- i don't think that everybody in america necessarily condemned trent lott. >> bill: no, the media did. >> media did and the democratic party did and the republicans couldn't stand the gaffe and he couldn't take it and decided to step aside as leader and that was basically the end of his political career as we knew it. >> bill: let's get to sarah palin signing on with fnc. smart move i think for the governor. do you agree? >> she is certa
oncenes, others are concentrating on relief efforts. >> ken is a regional representative for latin america. part of his job is to make sure that staff already in haiti are okay and to coordinate their relief services. catholic relief services has already committed an additional $5 million in response to the disaster. that will help pay for critical supplies. >> shelter, water purification tablets, plastic containers for water -- water is the essential item to supply in an emergency situation. >> some of the supplies are ready pre positioned in haiti. they will also be able to send in supplies from the dominican republic. that country had a mild hurricane season, so there are many supplies available. >> it is about a six hour drive. the road has been determined to be clear up to about 10 miles out of port-au-prince. >> more help could come by the way of a navy hospital ship. maybe it -- navy officials say that are poised to activate the ship if necessary. can be made ready to sail in five days. relief workers say if you want to do something, donate money, because monetary donations will get
-span. she said people say a lot of things. in america in 2010 the american public sees their future being lost because of out of control spending, they want us to do what we say we will do. president obama's biggest problem is that he ran a campaign promising one thing and he did another. that catches us all eventually, if you do that. >> greta: is it arrogance? >> i think it is trying to win at any and all costs. the politicians in this town believe if you don't pass health care on the democratic side you are going to suffer. that's what happened to president clinton. they never understood the american people are looking at what we do when we campaign and the way we govern. i think was a detachment and a sense of arrogance i'm going to get this bill through, no matter what. >> greta: senator, thank you. we are live until 11 p.m. with the latest on yesterday's bombshell election in massachusetts. >> next, is the nuclear option coming? >> by the way what is the nuclear option? if you don't know you need to sit where you are because you are about to find out. three questions answered: one,
basically through the internet. one of the representatives of the organization and america got the news directly from -- >> the orphanage director. >> sent us an e-mail and i guess we got it through facebook. >> it's incredible the technology you've been able to get this information. lisa, where do you go from here. you have to feel helpless. when you look at this video, these beautiful children you wan to give a better life to and it's a process. >> we don't know. there's a lot of rumors about the american government being able to get at least some of the children in the process of getting adopted back into the united states but we have not heard any confirmation of this. >> how long have you been going through the process to get them here? >> for eriksson it's been over a year and a half. thurlene is new. >> about six months. >> have you heard from local members of congress maybe in new york or other places trying to offer their assistance to you? >> well, actually we were contacted by spot stringer to lend a hand and we've been going back and forth with e-mails. hope fully we're goin
